This tour will be operated in English only.

You will be met  at the pier in Honningsvag and be taken by bus to the lavvocamp at Sarnes. Here a local escort takes you to the pier where the King Crabs will be caught. The crabs are either in large tanks on shore or in traps, which will be pulled from the ocean.
The King Crab can measure up to 2 meters between its claws, and weigh as much as 10 kilos. This giant crab has during the last years spread from the cold and deep Arctic sea around Russia and can now be found also down the coast of Norway.  However your experienced guide is most likely to catch "small" crabs at 3 to 7 kilos.

The crabs needed for cooking will be brought back to the lavvo, 20 yards from the pier. In the lavvo - a tent traditionally used by the samis - you will be sitting on reindeer skin, watching the crabs being prepared. A small meal of the crabs will be prepared and served in the lavvo. The King Crab is served with bread, lemon, mayonnaise and mineral water.

Note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 300 yards over even and uneven surfaces with 2 to 3 steps.
